60 new jobs in Southern Thuringia
Merbelsrod - Pump maker Nidec GPM GmbH, which became part of the Japanese electronics company Nidec Corporation last year, will extent its production. The Japanese has announced the expansion of the Thuringian location into a global center of excellence for innovative water pump technology. Already one of Thuringia's biggest employers before it was taken over by Nidec, with a staff of more than 1,000, the automotive supplier has extended its production area with the shop floor 9 by more than 3,700 m² and added a further 1,000 m² of office space. Around 60 new jobs will be created in the process. The Japanese management recently underlined its commitment to the Thuringian location on the occasion of the opening of the new production area. Further projects are at the planning stage.
